    There is a liberal state on the verge of falling off the cliff financially. Things are so bad that nobody even want's to talk about it.

    California bureaucrats just took 10% more of all paychecks from its residents starting tomorrow. The question is, why is this not all over the news? California basically just stole money in a forced manner b/c they are to stupid and incompetent to watch their own dollars. But don’t worry folks of California, they say you will get it all back. Eventually.

    It's surprising that totalitarians are on the march, and nobody fights an inch. Is this a future for all of us on a federal level?


    California to withhold a bigger chunk of paychecks

    If California was a Liberal state then Prop 8 wouldn't of passed and they wouldn't have a Republican Governor. Now if you said that certain parts of California are extremely Liberal then you would be correct.

    California is represented in US Congress by 2 Senators and 53 Representatives. Both senators are Democrats, 34 out of 53 Congressmans are Democrats, 18 are Republicans and one seat is vacant.

    California State Assembly has 80 seats, 51 are Democrats, 28 are Republicans and one seat is vacant.

    Are you still saying that California is Republican state because of Governor is Republican? Think again.

    We all know "republican" Schwarzenegger is and how he got in power. California isn't even blue anumore, it's red. Liberal, or should I say communist red.

    Your definition of liberal is as skewed as those who kiss Obama's ass. ;)

    to be sure this is the only country in the world in which liberals are big government types. Me I don't call them liberals as I am unwilling to give credit where it is most assuredly not due.

    Didn't CA temporarily issue IOU's for tax refunds last year?
    If I lived there, I'd be a bit nervous about this forced loan from me.

    Anyone who is a "big government" type is not liberal. ;)
